[CLIO] Virgin Kiss Sillkuid Lip in Cheshire

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Another one of my recent acquisitions by CLIO was one of the new Silkuid Lips, the new matte additions to the Virgin Kiss line of lip products. I ordered completely blind, as there were very few swatches of this product at all. What I had hoped for was a liquid MLBB lipstick that was matte and long lasting.

Mask Madness; Vol. I: Missha, O'Liye, My Beauty Diary, Innisfree, & My Scheming

The title says it all. I've been indulging in sheet masks like crazy lately, taking any opportunity to pop one on.

Weathered skin after a weekend of camping? Mask.
Dry skin from the heat? Mask.
Dull skin before a big night out? Mask.
Ran out of lasagna on a Monday? Mask.

There's a mask for that.

Two Stick Concealers Compared: [CLIO] Kill Cover Pro Artist vs Kanebo KATE

Tuesday, August 16, 2016

I realized last week that I only seem to buy concealers in certain forms. Squeeze tubes and stick are my favorite, followed by pan - as long as it has a screw on top. When was the last time I bought an open compact or liquid doe footed wand tube? No idea. Today I have two stick concealers from Asian brands to show you.

Review, Swatches, Looks: Sugarpill Sparkle Baby Palette

Sunday, August 14, 2016
I was recently reading the blog Portrait of Mai and she mentioned that the Sugarpill Cold Chemistry and Sparkle Baby palettes were being dc'd.


Sparkle Baby. I have that. I never reviewed that. *sheepish grin* Today is as good of a day as any!

Review: Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Hyaluronic Acid Lotion

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

I love hyaluronic acid lotions (or toners), I really do. For skin that dehydrates easily, HA lotions feel so nice as they help your skin plump and hold moisture. A long time ago (3 years!) I reviewed the "original" Gokujyun (Super) Moist Lotion and compared it to the JUJU Aquamoist Lotion (read that here). In addition to the regular Moist, there are now several versions of the Hada Labo HA lotion, including Light and Alpha (retinol).  When I ran out of my last lotion and found out that Hada Labo released a Premium version last year with FIVE forms of hyaluronic acid, well, I was very excited. Five, guys. Five!
